Are courses automatically added to a user's dashboard?

I may be crazy, but I've assumed for a while now that whenever a new semester starts (I'm in higher ed), a user's active courses automatically jump onto their Dashboard without them having to star anything and that previous courses move into Past Enrollments.


We opened a ticket with Canvas support because we had a Fall course that didn't show up on student dashboards and they said that it isn't an automatic process, that users always have to star courses no matter what semester you're starting or finishing.


I plan on watching what happens when our Spring semester launches on January 9th, 2017, but do any of you know if this happens automatically?


Note: We have an SIS integration with Banner, so courses, users, and course enrollments are mostly automated.
